Meditation for Trauma – Love for Orlando

A friend of mine has traveled to Orlando to offer free therapy to those affected by the recent tragic event that took place at Pulse.  He asked me if I would make a meditation available for people struggling with their emotions in the aftermath of this traumatic event. I am honored to be of service in this way. Through posts on Facebook and watching the news I see how this act of violence ripples out to the community, the country and the rest of the world. My prayer and deepest wish is that this offering may give somebody out there a moment of peace, comfort, and a knowledge that they are not alone. That we are ALL in this together. And if one suffers, we all suffer. Please feel free to share this link with anyone who you think could use it.

I have a prayer.  My prayer is to be of service.  Time feels like it is speeding up.  The planet is experiencing huge shifts, people are stressed and technology bombards us with shocking facts daily.

If you have read my blog before, you know that one of my favorite quotes from Yogi Bhajan is that in the Aquarian Age, one third of the population will die, one third will go insane, and one third will be left to deal.  Pretty grim for a favorite quote, eh?  Some days I wonder which third of the population I qualify for (har har.)

But seriously…what I like about this quote is that it confirms what I’m feeling – that things are intensifying in the world – I’m not just imagining it.  It also reminds me that I have tools I can use to feel more grounded and supported.  I would love to share these tools with those of you that might like some extra support.

I am offering a drop-in meditation class every Monday evening in the month of June.  It will be at my house, from 7-8:30pm.  We will start on time and end on time.  There will be a time for sharing, and then we will do some gentle stretches and breathing exercises and practice Kundalini meditation together.  This group will be for men and women, and all levels of ability and experience.  The drop in fee is $10.  If you are intersted, please email me for my address.  I’d love to have you join us.

Please read what astrologer Eric Francis has to say about the media and this intense time we live in:

Our senses were never intended to extend this far, or to perceive from this point of view — especially for those who are empaths or sensitives. They are more practical, intended to provide information about our local surroundings and the people with us in any given moment. Now we’re subject to incursion by anything that happens anywhere, and most of the time what we hear about is painful.
